Thanks Nu Soard. I should take the time to correct the wiki when I get the chance. THe manga are quite consistent, despite a few spelling errors. I'm going to use the "a" from "laser" to help remember that Spaad is the laser sword :)

I'm definitely in the mood for a silly thread like this, but there's far too many annoying characters to pick just one. So here's a list: Minmay from Super Dimension Fortress Macross the entire cast of Gundam Wing Quess from Char's CounterAttack Shinji from Evangelion all kawaii or loli characters a...

Spaad vs. Speid

Okay, which is which? I'm having trouble. I'm reading through the manga which seems to be using spaad as the laser sword and speid as the metal sword quite consistently. But I've read elsewhere online where they have them reversed. So what is correct?

I can tell I'm setting myself up for disappointment. I just obtained issues #1 and 4-6. I'm hooked, but I know I'm going to be missing the latest japanese issues when I finally finish collecting the english translations. Oh, the bittersweetness of being an anime fan :)

Happy new year all! I should post my first reactions to the new Macross Frontier show. I've watched it several times now and it's still creating a really good vibe. That's always a good sign. Sometimes when one is so excited about a new anime, it's easy to forgive the faults and form a 5-seconds-aft...

First episode of Macross Frontier is out! It's really good, much better than the first episode of Macross Zero. There's so much to discuss about this new episode, I don't know where to begin. The VF-171 is awesome, the VF-25 is even better if that's possible and the CG work is absolutely stunning! T...

I think everyone heard about the Odex debacle. It was such big news it even got the attention of the major news companies over here. I recall Forbes having an article about it :) I'd like to believe Odex messed up by suing it's customers, but I fear perhaps their litigation against the consumer migh...
